A new side of Ace Enders, I Can Make A Mess Like NobodyÆs Business was a eintroduction to the front man of The Early November back in 2004. His debut performance with this project was a record full of dark acoustic melodies and intricate vocal pieces. However, whereas that self-titled record was not entirely structured evenly, the 2010 follow-up, the beautiful The World We Know, embodied every facet of the aforementioned record, only with a fine-tuned, more ntellectual, and ultimately darker sound, as Enders expanded his ever-growing potential to maximum boundaries.
Now just a year later, Gold Rush showcases a different side to I Can Make A Mess Like NobodyÆs Business. Evident immediately throughout the opening title track, this is a record more fit for spring than the chilling The World We Know. The tracks this time around are much more upbeat and poppy at times, clearly a deviation from the majority of EndersÆ recent material. That is not to say, however, that this change is unwelcome or unfitting in any way, as the record fits the spring weather perfectly.
